Our first trip is only ten weeks away and counting! As our oldest son has just moved to Orlando, Florida - why wouldn't we start there so we can visit and spend some time together! We are heading first to Walt Disney World to stay at the fabulous Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort. We love to stay on property and find it to be one of the best campgrounds we've been to over the years. It's a spot we head to each and every year, and now we will likely go more thanks to Ian! You just simply cannot beat the high level of customer service, cleanliness, and the fun available for all ages at Disney. As noted on their website, "Great for larger parties, 4 types of campsites accommodate everything from tents to 45-foot and longer RVs, with a maximum of 10 Guests per site. Each campsite is equipped with privacy-enhancing landscaping, water, cable television and electrical hook-ups, a picnic table and a charcoal grill. Most campsites also include a sewer hook-up, and some even permit pets." We love it and will go back for years to come. We've also booked a second vacation for June/ July of this year. Our plan for that second visit is going to be a little different for us as this year we will be purchasing a car tow for our RV! This should really begin to open up our experiences when we travel! We plan to use Disney as the great vacation spot that it is, as well as enhance our trip by using our car to get out and see more of the surrounding area. We are very excited to take the kids to Cape Canaveral, spend a day at Cocoa Beach, visit Universal (so want to check out The Wizarding World of Harry Potter), and more! Orlando is a great city and we really want to enjoy all that it has to offer.
We are really excited to go back to a few locales we have enjoyed in years past, such as Washington D.C. It's a great idea, as the kids get older, to go back and revisit spots your family really enjoyed on past vacations. For our youngest, there are some trips she can hardly recall as she was so little when we went the first time- what a great idea to go back and make some new memories in an area you know you will love again! We will be staying again at the Cherry Hill Park Campground in College Park, Maryland. This is the closest RV park to D.C. and offers great public transportation. Although we will have our car, it is much easier to get around D.C. utilizing the Metro line. The traffic in D.C. is a little tricky, so we like to keep things simple. Cherry Hill Campground is a great park offering plenty of level sites, full hookups, and great amenities. There is so much to see and do in our nation's capital. We will be spending a few days visiting the capital and the surrounding attractions. It's a city rich with culture and history. Important to note that many attractions are FREE!!
Yes you can RV near New York City! It's true, we've done it and we plan to do it again. As mentioned, some of our trips of 2016 are about "going back". One of our trips we've been dying to go back to redo is NYC baby! We plan on staying again at Liberty Harbor RV Park in Jersey City, NJ. How cool is it that you can see the Statue of Liberty from your own RV?! Keep in mind this RV park is not much more than a parking lot, but the location is incredible. Let's face it, if you're going to stay next to the city, you're not there to sit and enjoy nature...you're there to see the bright lights and big city! The price is right and you can access the city by ferry, the PATH or a cab. They even offer tours right from the RV Park. Great spot, give it a try if you want to take in the Big Apple.
To fill in seven weeks of vacation, we still have so much more to reserve over the next few weeks. On the board is Hershey Park, Sherkston Shores, Cedar Point RV Campround, and possibly even The Villages at Turning Stone Casino for a couples only retreat. We shall see! So much fun and excitement, along with continuing changes for 2016! Bring it on!
Glamp on friends!
